It sounds like your lens is bad or your disc tray is not spinning your discs.

    Try cleaning it first with a qtip. Put a little bit of alcohol on the q-tip and rub it on the lens. If this does not work let me know

My psp will not play Movies Games, or any installed Software


When you put the game in, there is a latch inside the back of the psp where you insert the game, at the bottom the psp, that when you put the game in, it tells the psp that a game has been inserted and to load the game. When you put the game in, look and see if you see a silver latch that the game should push. If you see it, make sure the game is pushing down on it when inserted. If it is not there, or it still does not work, you will need to get it serviced at a game store or at a shop.

Psp error # 80010087 The game can not be started


Hi robbimic,

The first thing to check is the firmware of your PSP. You should make sure that your PSP has the latest firmware loaded. Because some games will not work or load up if the latest firmware is not installed or loaded up.
You usually get this error message 80010087 if the UMD drive has errors reading the UMD disc or otherwise the disc is not present or was ejected while in the middle of playing a game or loading a movie. I suggest that you try to testing to see if the problem happens with other UMD discs, if it doesn't then most likely the disc could be damaged or scratched.

Now if you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having any UMD disc inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version installed into the PSP. You will be required to flash a higher modded firmware to fix this error if this is your case.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

My PSP shows a message when a umd is inserted: The disc cannot be read. This PSP is less than 9 months old.


Have you tried updating the firmware on your psp? If you havent done that in a while, you may need to because as sony puts out new firmware updates, they update the umds as well, so that you need to have the most recent firmware to play the most recent movies and games. If this doesnt work, you could always try cleaning the cd, and downgrading the firmware, if it lets you, that is...

Psp lockout


Based on my experience, this can be due to several things from a bad laser to a bad motherboard or spindle motor, etc... This is not a problem you can fix alone if you're not experienced. When you say "it won't read them" do you also get a disc read error message on the screen, or does the screen stay exactly the same (no message) ? If you answer this I can further pinpoint where the problem is ?

PS2 consule says read disc error for every game inserted


I helped a friend fix his PS2 with these symptoms using this webpage:

This is not to say yours has the same problems, but it's probably worth a try.

Good luck.
